  1. Its the covid price. I have spoke to so many people recently that have had a car a couple of years and have just sold it for more than they paid (all manner of cars) that being said, does seem way OTT but like everything in life, its value is what someone is willing to pay for it.

    Caster issues?

    I have done a fair amount of geo setup on the zed. The factory caster is around 8deg, which is way over “most road cars” that run around 4. With my eibach adjustable camber arms (top arms) they allow for changing the caster by around 1 deg each way, i have had to reduce mine slightly to get back in spec. I struggle to think how changing top arms for others designed for a 350z can take 8deg off. I havent seen the moog ones but they will prob be handed. Are you sure they are on the correct side? the other thing to check is toe, if you have a fair amount of toe out, it will make the car wond
  3. It will be the pumps that have gone. 2 seperate pumps for front/back washers that are next to each other connected to reservoir bottle on drivers side. Mine both packed in at same time, seems highly unlikely but others have had same thing. The headlight washers are operated by pump on opposite side and these hardly ever fail. Luckily you can get the pumps cheap. Blueprint ones are about £20 each, oem are around £40-50 i think. Got mine from clarke motorsport
  4. Sorry, won’t be able to make it on 29th as i have a hillclimb event booked. Not had any correspondence yet though or ticket from organisers.
  5. I did for my 2008 uk zed and it still came up with this. Unfortunately for me i am after some cheap rear discs as my pads are eating through rear discs (branded aftermarket) like cake but they have not made the same error with rear discs so just passing this on for anyone in need of replacement front discs. As you say it may be too good to be true but as you can collect them buyers can always check the size when they pick up from store.
  6. Not sure Alex, when you click on fitment details it shows this
  7. For anyone wanting some “oem type” front discs i think eurocarparts may have made a mistake or want rid of a load, they come up way cheaper than the other front/rear disc options, they are brembo fitment and with current discount code applied are just £42 pair. See screenshot below. Collect from your local store as well.
  8. I have a lightweight lithium battery so don't know if this will be any help but voltage when engine off normally reads between 13.4 and 13.9 (it has a digital display on battery so you can check anytime which is useful) in the car on the pod gauge with engine running today it read exactly 14v
  9. Yeah, the atom was a different beast, very go kart like and rapid. The lack of power steering is very noticeable having never driven a car (although in the atom thats a loose term) without it. And the generic mid range tyres means the instructor was flapping as soon as he realised i wasn't going to tootle along. The sound advice from him though was drive it smooth. When i spun it was because i turned in too quickly, back end let go and unlike the other cars you have zero aids to save you from looking like A- a hooligan or B- an amateur you cant really save it either as the steering is to
  10. Lets have a little update.... Not much happeened for the first few months of the year during another lockdown but April arrived and so did my 40th birthday. Could not do much as restrictions were in full force but i did get this cake! Then a few days later it was the first hillclimb of the year at Harewood, no spectators or catering but it was still good to get out, stretch the Zed and chat to other petroheads. It was nice weather but bitterly cold as you can see from the picture below, there had been a snow flurry through the night (you can make out the snow topped hill

  12. Cheap set of 370 rays for someone, less than 24hr to go
  13. Are you wanting oem stuff or aftermarket? I have just about everything except the wiring pulled out of my 350. oem stereo, sat nav, bluetooth unit, sub, amp, speakers.
  14. This is another of those pointless “green” initiatives in my eyes. If changing to E10 saves 750k co2 emissions per year (equ to 350k cars so roughly each car produces 2tonnes of co2) but as stated has less energy so reduces mpg meaning more fuel burnt then a quick google search told me the uk has 18.8m petrol cars on road (2019) if each of those drove the same miles on E10 at just 2% worse mpg the extra 40kg of co2 produced by each car to make up for the shortfall in mpg equates to 752k more co2 for the year negating the entire reduction. Or am i missing something? Anyway, rant aside, i h
  15. Great spot. Ordered a 500ml and 1ltr kit which then qualifies for free delivery as well. Having previously sold and used lots of their products i can say most will not disappoint and at that quite frankly ridiculous price its a steel.
